Phone maker Nokia is suing Philips and 10 other companies for price fixing liquid crystal displays and traditional cathode ray tubes used in computer and mobile phone screens, the Finnish company said on Tuesday.
Nokia spokesman Mark Durrant declined to say how much Nokia was claiming in compensation but said the sums involved were ´not insignificant´, according to media reports.
In July, European competition commissioner Neelie Kroes said she suspected LCD makers of cartel forming, leading Philips to state it was not directly involved in the investigation.
A Philips spokesman declined to comment on the Nokia claims, telling the Telegraaf ´we are looking into it´.
